Last week Tesla CEO Elon Musk couldn’t contain himself — he had to tweet about his electric car company and how many cars it would make by the end of the year.

The problem? He isn’t supposed to tweet about things that could impact markets and his publicly traded company. After he reached a settlement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission last year over his now infamous “take Tesla private” tweet, he’s not supposed to tweet about Tesla without approval from the company. 

Now Bloomberg reports that the SEC is asking a judge to hold Musk in contempt for tweeting Tesla “will make around 500K in 2019.”

On the same day of the original tweet, a few hours later, Musk amended his comment, clarifying that he meant an “annualized production rate” based on 10,000 cars made per week.

Both tweets still remain up on his Twitter feed. 

We reached out to the SEC for more information.
